    Potterfields Donate $250,000 to Missouri Junior Trapshooters

    Columbia, MO -- Larry and Brenda Potterfield of MidwayUSA recently donated $250,000 to the Foundation for the Junior Trapshooters of Missouri, Inc.

    "Thanks to generous support from people like Larry and Brenda Potterfield, the Foundation for the Junior Trapshooters will continue to serve as a youth shooting program for Missouri," says William Fienup, Foundation President. "This donation from the Potterfields and MidwayUSA will help us accomplish our vision of developing young trapshooters, the future of our sport."

    Established in 1967, the Foundation for the Junior Trap Shooters of Missouri was created to fund instruction and training of trapshooting to Missouri youth and also assists with shooting supplies and safety training. The Foundation is associated with the Missouri Trapshooters Association in Linn Creek, MO, where hundreds of young Missourians experience and learn the sport of trapshooting each year.

    Larry Potterfield, Founder and CEO of MidwayUSA remarked, "Brenda and I are excited to support Junior Trapshooters. This organization, in our home state, is focused on developing tomorrow's shooters today. Changing the future requires us to make the commitment in time and money to support these efforts, and Brenda and I are pleased we can help."

    That's really great.

    Nice that they've been able to be successful with what they do and that they are willing to give back.

    Their business and website are great. They seem to have anything you could think of and I've always had good luck dealing with them.

    Great website and service. And their NRA Round-Up is a brilliant and effective idea.


    A lot of people sit on here and beeoch about "NRA this" or "NRA that."


    Well I say, let 'em beeoch. One Larry Potterfield and his company make more impact than 10,000 of these beeochers combined.


    While they rant on the internet - he makes a difference.

    Well they will certainly get more of my business from here on out.
    I've been buying from them for over 15+ years.
